That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 7.31.17
Question of the Week: What’s your favorite makeup palette, and why?
Answer: Much like a magpie, I am attracted to the newest shiny thing. So, my favorite palettes tend to be my newest. Here are my three favorite new eye shadow palettes right now…
MAC Power Hungry eye shadow palette ($39.50) – From the just launched Girls collection (home of the famous “Basic Bitch” palette), Power Hungry is a pretty mix of brown, gold and taupe with a light gold shimmery highlighter. What might be most exciting about it are the updated shadow formulas: creamy matte, satin shine, smooth pearl and foil. They are all super smooth and VERY pigmented!
Clarins Sunkissed Summer 2017 eye shadow palette ($43) – This limited edition beaute is like summer in a palette! The golden shimmery browns and that amazing pop of orange make me swoon. And, take a peek at that packaging!
Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic eye shadow palette in Glambition ($49) – I’m embarrassed to say this is my very first Marc Jacobs palette. Why did I wait so long?! Glambition is a mix of warm/neutral shades in four formulas: velvet, satin, silk and lamé. And it is as beautiful as can be expected from Mr. Jacobs.
